„Хорошая книга даёт плоды, порождая другие книги.“

„Дар видеть красоту в самых обычных вещах приносит в дом счастье и делает жизнь прекрасной. The power of finding beauty in the humblest things makes home happy and life lovely.“


„She is too fond of books, and it has turned her brain.“ Work: A Story of Experience

„I like good strong words that mean something…“ Little Women

„I am not afraid of storms, for I am learning how to sail my ship.“ Little Women

„I ask not for any crown
But that which all may win;
Nor try to conquer any world
Except the one within.“

„Far away there in the sunshine are my highest aspirations. I may not reach them, but I can look up and see their beauty, believe in them, and try to follow where they lead.“

„The power of finding beauty in the humblest things makes home happy and life lovely.“


„A faithful friend is a strong defense;
And he that hath found him hath found a treasure.“

„Your father, Jo. He never loses patience, never doubts or complains, but always hopes, and works and waits so cheerfully that one is ashamed to do otherwise before him.“ Little Women

„I'd rather take coffee than compliments just now.“ Little Women

„I've got the key to my castle in the air, but whether I can unlock the door remains to be seen.“ Little Women


„Love Jo all your days, if you choose, but don't let it spoil you, for it's wicked to throw away so many good gifts because you can't have the one you want.“ Little Women

„Don't laugh at the spinsters, dear girls, for often very tender, tragic romances are hidden away in the hearts that beat so quietly under the sober gowns, and many silent sacrifices of youth, health, ambition, love itself, make the faded faces beautiful in God's sight. Even the sad, sour sisters should be kindly dealt with, because they have missed the sweetest part of life, if for no other reason.“ Little Women

„Human minds are more full of mysteries than any written book and more changeable than the cloud shapes in the air.“ The Abbot's Ghost: A Christmas Story

„There are many Beths in the world, shy and quiet, sitting in corners till needed, and living for others so cheerfully that no one sees the sacrifices till the little cricket on the hearth stops chirping, and the sweet, sunshiny presence vanishes, leaving silence and shadow behind.“ Little Women
